Why should internationalisation be inclusive?

It’s valuable for every student to gain international competences. These competences help students with their personal development and increase their chances on the labour market. Every student therefore should have the opportunity to develop international competences. One way by which students can do this is by going abroad for (part of) their studies, an internship or a study trip. However, travelling abroad is not yet accessible to every student.

Who should play this game?

This game is intended for professionals working at vocational education and training school and higher education institutions. In particular, employees who deal with students going abroad for an international experience during their studies. These may be tutors and teachers, but can also be employees with other job profiles, such as policy officers and administrative staff.

How is this game developed?

This game is created on the initiative of the National Taskforce Inclusive Internationalisation (Landelijke Werkgroep Inclusief Internationaliseren). It was developed in a collaboration between Nuffic and ECIO, the expertise centre on inclusive education. The personas and situations in the game are based on Nuffic's research on inclusive internationalisation (516.12 kB) (in Dutch) and interviews with students and professionals in secondary and higher education. The format of the game is based by the UDL-game previously released by ECIO.

In case of any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the game developers; ECIO: Ellen van Veen, ellen.vanveen@ecio.nl and Nuffic: Dana van Nieuwaal, dvannieuwaal@nuffic.nl.
